Denke mal, dass nicht die Geschichte Schuld ist, sondern andere - auch internationale - Kreise hinter dem Putsch standen....ein fortschrittliches Chile in Südamerika war ihnen ein Dorn im Auge.

obviously you have an opposite (right-conservative) opinion, no problem......(actually it's a problem).
if you mean, that Pinochet, who was appointed with the help of CIA, and murdered 10thousends of innocent Chilean's (and even US-citizens, who were in Chile at that time)....was no "cancer", then I would be interested, where and how you form your opinion.

may be you are not informed what happened in Chile at that time?...and I'm sure you voted for Bush, right?

I lived there. I was there at the time. Were you? I was there when 500,000 mothers marched on La Moneda banging their pots because they had no food to feed their children and that Allende ordered them tear gassed. I was there when he turned the economy over to the Russians and the Cubans and in three short years the economy ground to a complete halt. I was there when he danced arm in arm with that other Cancer on history, Fidel Castro. I was there when he was so drunk his body guards had to hold him up so he could give another one of his endless, meandering, non-sensical speaches. I lived in Los Chorreos in Vina del Mar, Cerro Esperansa in Quilpue, on Avenida El Bosque in Providencia, and in Tocopilla. Where did you live? Oh and by the way, you dim bulb, what has Bush got to do with that time. He was in office 30 years later.

You lived there? Pinochet lived there, right? His hangmen lived there? This says nothing, this is justifying nothing.....Allende and his politics were sabotaged by the CIA and the ultra-right-conservative forces in Chile to get back the power to the international companies, away from the people of Chile,.....they sabotaged a democratic elected administration to set up a fascistic dictatorship and years of murder, of fear of unfreedom followed. Obviously is that, what you are defending. I'm not calling you anything, because I don't want to go down to a level, where you seem to be already and obviously it's senseless to discuss about things like democracy and freedom with you. You are living now in the US, as you write in your profile. That's the reason why I made this statement about Bush. Such opinions you're fighting for fit perfect to the agenda of G.W. Bush. And his father by the way was director of that criminal CIA too.

The different US-governments in history with their imperialistic politics are responsible for millions of deaths in the world (Chile, Vietnam, Laos, Iraq, Afghanistan, many many other conflicts......). Fidel Castro is responsible for a Cuba, which has, compared to all other latin american countries, less crimes, less drugs, more medical support, much much more education, no analphabetism and and and...... What is the real cancer in this world?

And by the way.....you are welcome on Ipernity, so please post some photos which you made!

Interesting. You mean (for example), if I have not been in a concentration camp during world war II, I may have no opinion about Nazis?? Hey man, there are historical facts someone knows without having been there!!

Just as I thought, you were no where near Chile. You may have an opinion...but you are no expert. I had a front row seat to history but yet I know nothing. you however know it all. Would you go to a concentration camp suvivor and tell them that they are wrong, it really wasn't all that bad? Sorry, your credentials don't hold up. I am finished with this, you small, small man.
